A New Chapter Begins

To Our Organization Supporters and Fellow Community Members:

Today, the Board of Directors announces Dawn Owen’s’ departure as Executive Director of the Link of Cullman County, effective September 19th, 2019.

In 2012, Dawn’s God-given vision of growing people out of poverty in the Cullman community through encouragement, education, and employability training resulted in the creation of The Link. Her hard work over the past seven years brought that vision to a reality through the people, programs, and services of this organization. Under her leadership, The Link has flourished as she and the staff developed a committed volunteer and supporter base while loving and encouraging the people who make up our community.

As Dawn takes some time to figure out what God has for her next, we thank her for her vision, her love for this community, and her years of dedicated service and wish her the best in every new endeavor. We look forward to seeing how the Lord will use Dawn in the future and remain hopeful and excited for the next chapter in the life of The Link of Cullman County.

During this transitional time, the Board of Directors will review the needs of the organization and the community as it continues to fight poverty through encouragement, education, and employability training. If you have questions or suggestions in these areas, please contact Board President Trae Norrell at (205) 300-3465 or
